Our piece — Will Climate-Change Fanaticism Bankrupt the West? —brought many responses, including this one. The first issue, of course, is that whatever one may think is the desirability of meeting the Net-Zero carbon goal, that is not in the power of the UK, or of California. The second issue is money.
Our piece — Will Climate-Change Fanaticism Bankrupt The West? — brought many comments including some short but clear ones. If we need anything right now, it is clear-headed thinking.
We ran a piece titled, Will Climate-Change Fanaticism Bankrupt The West? Though responses mainly have been in agreement, the article received this passionate objection.
Energy policies in much of the West today resemble a religion, based on faith, rather than any kind of actual cost/benefit analysis. In fact, it reminds one of the policies adopted around COVID, where the desire to be seen as doing something about the pandemic seemed so great that many were simply incapable of looking at the costs of, say, keeping children home from school. But this policy can result in bankrupt farms, stores, restaurants, etc. – And, of course, consumers that have to spend their money on electric and fuel will look to economize elsewhere.
